we didnt see any whales - such is nature - but, there were hundreds & hundreds of dolphins that was of course exciting to see!

Mega-pod of dolphins

The boat was uncrowded as it was the last cruise of the day. The captain headed out and soon spotted a huge number of dolphins. He took us right into the pod. At least a hundred of these animals were racing with our boat and jumping up out of the water. We never saw a whale, but seeing these dolphins was an experience of a lifetime.

whale watching boat tour - marginal at best

it was my understanding that this is the time of whale observing. with modern means of sharing information, i feel the company was pretty sure we wouldn't see any whales, but they were happy to take our money and give us a two hour boat trip. i was most disappointed and would not recommend the boat ride. we saw more sea life activity from the balcony of our hotel than we did from the boat.

they didn't work very hard at finding whales

nice boat, comfortable and clean. they guarantee sightings of either whales or dolphins, we found the dolphins first and after that I didn't get a feeling they were looking very hard for whales--they headed back toward our embarkation point and just sort of skimmed along the shore. I've been on other whale watching tours where they moved around to several sites to find whales.

NIce cruise but no whales

I guess it doesn't happen that often, in fact, the boat before us (2pm sailing) saw a humpback, but unfortunately we didn't see anything-not even dolphins, which we were told are always around. Instead we had a nice cruise. The ship is clean and the crew is efficient. They are very prompt leaving and returning. Upon returning we did receive a coupon for a free cruise-which does not expire-so that was a plus. Cost was affordable and for 2 hours it really doesn't cut into your vacation time that much.

No whales=Whale Check

The boat was well maintained and the voyage pleasant. Unfortunately, we sighted no whales. However, we were very pleasantly surprised when everyone on the boat was given a Whale Check for free passage on another day.

Wonderful Time!

After two weeks of stormy, cold weather, and very rough seas the skies were clear, temperatures were in the low 70s and the Pacific was like glass! After much anticipation, we departed the harbor in search of sea life and we were not disappointed! A lone seal was in the harbor, pelicans were on the jetty and not long after leaving port, we spotted the first of several gray whales. We followed the whales up the coastline until it was time to turn back. Several Pacific Bottlenosed Dolphis were sited as was lone sea lion sunning himself on a bouy. We had a FABULOUS time and will go out again if we're ever in California!

The weather was nice and we were able to watch the sunset off the water. No whales but plenty of other sightings.
